Mellow Yellows

Don’t you just love it when you find yourself eating your words???  Well today’s my day.  I actually am partial to, make that totally digging these yellow interiors!  Just a few weeks ago I gave my “I’m the designer and I KNOW what I’m talking about” evil eye to my other half when he suggested we paint our bedroom yellow. “Never” was actually mentioned.  And now here I am posting about this very shade…

eloquent essence yellow living room

Hello sunshine…  Block printed slipcovers make this space so cute and SO easy to switch out when the season changes!

White walls get a real pick-me up from these creamy yellow fabrics and bold frames. 



Just a touch of yellow gives this room so much life.

On my wish list. 


compulsively compiled yellow stripe awning

Perfect poolside stripes.



Looks like a lot of monkeying around goes on in this fuss free kitchen.



Do you suffer from color commitment issues like moi???  I prefer color in the accessories rather than the big ticket items.  This Kitchen is totally up my alley.  And the fabulous metal island and big ol’ gas range sure doesn’t hurt either!

Can’t you just feel the breeze and hear the ocean in this bathroom???   Bead board and plank walls shout beach house to me.

A delicious tablescape from Mr. Eddie Ross.  Love the vintage flatware and tablecloth!

Oooh don’t you just love the bright mustardy color of these foldable bistro chairs and bright sunflowers?

Like you, I am a bit ambivalent towards yellow but these mellow yellows are something different altogether. Love the Eddie Ross setting...too cute, xv.

I think a little touch of yellow is beautiful, its so cheery and brightens the mood


I was the same way. Never thought I'd like yellow but it's currently one of my favorite colors. I love that last two images - I guess my mind is on outdoor dining.

Hahaha. I have had that happen too-- found myself backtracking on something I've declared I "hate" (I suppose, as my parents used to remind me when I was little, "Hate is a strong word.") This is a great round of yellow too; I love the awning stripes, the bathroom, and both the outdoor dining spaces.

I absolutely adore the colour yellow. In fact, I'm wearing a yellow shirt today! Full of serotin...such a happy colour like the sunshine!
